I am also researchin the Somers, Davis family as my husband is also a direct descendant of Francis Somers who was born in 1863. I have sent you a PM but think I may have (finally) identified just WHO Ann's parents actually were. If you have too we can compare if not we can share (and discuss).

Hi Cynthia, Your connection would be very much appreciated. I have a copy of her pic, thank you. I can send you a copy of my info but it will take a couple of days all of my info is on an old computer. Would you be able to send me your postal address so I can send it to you, please. Your help is very much appreciated.

Hi Kingo ... you are doing quite well for a person who is over 70, hopefully when you have retired from searching there will be someone there to take over from you. Regards Karen

aS YOU KNOW, most taswegians are interrelated, I have found this out more so since doing the family history. By the way I was a bit short on my family tree, it is 31,347 names I have, but I have gone out on all limbs.....Kingston, Rollins, Brown,Meredith, Worsley, Richardson, Batchelor,Clifford, Woolley, Reardon, Allanby just to name a few

Have you got the Tasmanian Pioneer Index, I had it but it got accidently burnt and it is $200 a CD.
